Tim Bolduc Great book!
The unabridged is the best version. Dick Winters book is great too! Connie I really dislike 'abridged' books, they always seems choppy to me, and I feel like I've missed something. To hear more about the development of characters of this Band of Brothers, would have been a good thing. However the book was a good reminder of what our men endured during this war. Bruce Curson I hate abridged versions but this was all that was available There is no doubt that the story and characters would have been much more developed for the listener if the whole book wasn't crammed into 5 CD's.
In this "abridged review", I admit that I got the jist of the story and am sure this version did not give the Mr. Ambrose's full work its due justice. Anthony Fascinating and riveting.
A terrific story, well researched and well read.
I foolishly listened to the abridged version, and it seemed too short. Highly recommended, but savor the unabridged version.
Anonymous Highly recommended! Well written and researched this book tells a story everone who didn't live through World War Two should read. Ambrose effectively and movingly tells the stories of true American hereoes.
Janice Church Dramatic - difficult to stop listening. Some things never change. Glad that Easy Company at least got some of Hitler's silverware -- small reward for so much death and suffering.
I highly recommend if you want to experience firsthand like it really was for Easy Company.
